Senator Chris McDaniel Pens Open Letter to Mississippi Conservatives, Steven Palazzo Breathes Sigh of Relief

From Senator Chris McDaniel:

Dear Friends,

For months, friends and supporters have been asking me to run for Congress against Steven Palazzo. Such requests have only intensified in light of Steven’s inexplicable support of President Obama’s disastrous budget, whereby many Congressional Republicans (including Mississippi’s entire GOP delegation) voted to fully fund the president’s liberal agenda, including Obamacare, Planned Parenthood, sanctuary cities, climate change, refugee resettlement programs and his unconstitutional executive orders.

Put simply, the Omnibus Spending Bill they supported did not honor the promises they made to the men and women who elected them. Instead, the bill adopted the big-government agenda of Democrats and effectively forfeited our Republican victories of 2014, while cementing Obama’s priorities for nearly the full remainder of his term.

Ninety-five House Republicans displayed courage in fighting the president. But Mississippi’s delegation did not. Each of them surrendered without a fight and blindly supported President Obama in the same manner they blindly supported the failed leadership of House Speaker John Boehner. [Read more…]

The Incomparable Mr. Jefferson

In honor of the #StandwithJefferson movement at the University of Missouri, where conservatives are battling moronic leftists who, in shades of ISIS, are attempting to remove a statue of Thomas Jefferson from the campus, I am reposting a column I wrote many years ago honoring one of our greatest Presidents.

By Ryan S. Walters

Historians and presidential scholars have argued for decades over which president was the greatest and most influential of all time.  It is an argument without end.

In my estimation one must stand out above all others.  Thomas Jefferson should be ranked as our greatest president, especially by all those who love liberty and honor the true values of the American Revolution. [Read more…]

Erickson: The Chris McDaniel Legacy Haunts the Republican Party

By Erick Erickson, Red State, September 8, 2015

Chris McDaniel ran for the United States Senate as a Republican. He won the Republican Primary in Mississippi, but was thrown into a runoff against Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), the incumbent.

During the runoff, the Republican Party in Mississippi and Washington pulled out all the stops to stop McDaniel. They assailed outside conservative groups as malevolent influences in the Republican Party. They used friends in the news media to attack conservatives who strayed from the party line. [Read more…]

Politistick: Brutally Honest Statement About the GOP’s Future by the Party’s Chair Will Shock You

By Jennifer Burke, Politistick, June 15, 2015

Bob Dole. John McCain. Mitt Romney. These are all squishy GOP candidates who we were told were the only ones who could win. The problem is, they didn’t.Jeb-Bush-550x300

You see, the GOP has a problem. Well, they actually have many problems. They have too many elected officials who fail to follow the party’s platform. They have too many who go along to get along seemingly being so content with having any amount of power that even when they have taken over the majority of both the House and Senate, such as now, they assist the most power hungry, dictatorial, corrupt president this country has ever seen with passing his agenda.

Buchanan: Will the GOP Capitulate Again?

Pat Buchanan has always been right on trade!

By Pat Buchanan, Townhall.com, February 20, 2015

“Free trade results in giving our money, our manufactures, and our markets to other nations,” warned the Republican Senator from Ohio and future President William McKinley in 1892. ”Thank God I am not a free-trader,” echoed the rising Empire State Republican and future President Theodore Roosevelt.

Those were the voices of a Republican Party that believed in prospering America first. [Read more…]

The Electoral College and the Constitutional Ignorance of the Left

By Ryan S. Walters

I recently ran across an interesting article on the leftwing website Salon.com on the Electoral College and the “schemes” of Republicans who want to change it.

In a piece entitled “Now they are trying to steal 2016: The demented GOP schemes to re-wire the Electoral College and elected a Tea Party president,” writer Paul Rosenberg, who hails from the Socialist Republic of California and also writes for Al Jazerra English, blasts conservatives for apparently committing the unpardonable sin of wanting to tamper with the sacred electoral process in the Constitution. “Republicans know they can’t win the popular vote,” he writes. “You won’t believe sick schemes they’ve launched to get around it.”

You really must appreciate the irony in such a vast waste of time and space. Aside from the fact that the Left hates the Constitution and always has since the days of Alexander Hamilton, Mr. Rosenberg never bothered to mention the major effort underway by Democrats to change the Electoral College to suit them. We will get to that shortly but first let’s look at a little constitutional history and what “sick scheme” Republicans are debating. [Read more…]

Dot Ward: Moving Forward With GOP

Moving Forward with GOP

By Dot Ward, Clarion Ledger, November 17, 2014

Charles Krauthammer, in his Washington Post column following the Nov. 4 general election, nailed it when he said in a “memo” to the GOP, “You had a great night on Tuesday. But remember: You didn’t win it. The Democrats lost it.”

How right he is! I dare say that many of the votes cast in Mississippi were not enthusiastically in support of the Republican Party. When Obama stated a month before the election that “these (Obama’s) policies are on the ballot — every single one of them” the American people spoke and they spoke loudly in rejecting those policies. It was not an endorsement of the GOP. [Read more…]
